First 3D images of a giant molecule

Capturing the structure of large molecular complexes with variable shape is an extremely difficult task. Scientists from Würzburg and Montpellier now have been able to do it—thanks to a new approach regarding an important ...

Using neutron scattering to better understand milk composition

Neutron scattering is a technique commonly used in physics and biology to understand the composition of complex multicomponent mixtures and is increasingly being used to study applied materials such as food. A new paper published ...

Lab 3-D prints microbes to enhance biomaterials

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have developed a new method for 3-D printing living microbes in controlled patterns, expanding the potential for using engineered bacteria to recover rare-earth metals, ...

Three-dimensional view of catalysts in action

For understanding the structure and function of catalysts in action, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), in cooperation with colleagues from the Swiss Light Source SLS of Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) ...

A genetic shortcut to help visualize proteins at work

One of biologists' most vexing tasks is figuring out how proteins, the molecules that carry the brunt of a cell's work, do their job. Each protein has a variety of knobs, folds, and clefts on its surface that dictate what ...
